Later this month, the Princeton LAWV office will again have the pleasure of partnering with other members of the local legal community to host six judges from the country of Mongolia. The Princeton Office hosted a visit by judges from Mongolia last year. The visit went very well, and the Princeton Office has been asked to participate again this year. There will be a new group of judges this year. The judges will visit and learn more about the U.S. legal system and various levels of the court (city, county, state and federal levels) and gain a deeper understanding of the local judicial system. The judges are scheduled to visit with area judges, prosecutors, court staff, and even state government officials.
Dr. Sudhakar Jamkhandi, president of the non-profit Center for International Understanding in Princeton, contacted the Princeton office and arranged for the visit. Princeton has been chosen as one of the host cities for the Open World’s Rule of Law program. An interpreter will accompany the judges on the visit.
Information provided regarding the judges indicate that the experience and professional interests of the judges include defending and protecting human rights, restoring violated rights, and judicial ethics.
The Princeton LAWV Office is particularly excited about sharing the work our organization does to safeguard and protect the legal rights of the indigent and vulnerable members of our community, as well as learn more and deepen our knowledge with regards to the legal system in Mongolia.
